Situation

Over the course of ninety days at the end of 2011, four photographers posted images to a blog in response to words supplied monthly by the architect Deborah Berke. Each photographer also tapped a fellow artist to post photographs in response to one of the words. Berke’s staff weekly printed and pinned up the latest photographs, then added comments on post-it notes.
